Return to sender. If you throw your trash in a Thai national park, be aware that it could be returned to you. Authorities in the popular Khao Yai National Park, near Bangkok, will begin returning garbage to their owners, Thai Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa said, relayed by BBC. Offenders will also be registered in the police registers.

At the entrance to the park, tourists must register with their addresses, which makes it easy for rangers to find them if they leave litter. Proof of the act, the Minister of the Environment has published on his Facebook account photos of waste placed in cardboard packages ready to be shipped. It features used plastic water bottles, soda cans, torn packets of crisps and sunflower seeds. Packages accompanied by a note that reads: "You forgot some of your personal belongings in Khao Yai National Park," quotes the New York Times.

  Petition Against Replacing Ginsburg Until Election Gets More Than 475K Signatures in Under a Day The petition, created late Friday night, asks the U.S. Senate not to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with under 50 days left to the election."Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dying wish was that her Supreme Court seat not be filled until a new president was installed. She was a champion for gender equality, among other issues rooted in fairness and justice for all. With less than 50 days until the election and voting already underway in many states, it's important that we demand all senators pledge not to move forward with any nominee until after the next inauguration," MoveOn.org said in its petition.

VELIKA KLADUSA, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Remote woods, abandoned run-down buildings and roadsides in northwestern Bosnia are steadily filling with makeshift camps where migrants and refugees from the Mideast, Asia and North Africa are bracing for more misery as autumn’s chill and rains set in. A sense of desperation hangs over the hundreds of men and boys who have been forced to build tents from sticks and black plastic tarps in the forests after local authorities in Bosnia's Krajina region decided last month to start pushing them away from town centers, even kicking them out of U.N-run reception centers there.
